Work Style Wednesday: Exaggerated A-Line Dress

On an impromptu visit to one of my favorite Coral Gables boutiques, Isa Boutique, I came across this “exaggerated” A-line dress. An A-Line dress is a dress that is fitted at the shoulders and chest and gradually widens towards the waist and hem, giving the impression of the shape of a capital letter A.

However, the (not so) little A-line dress you see below not only widens towards the bottom, but also contains an excess (in a good way) of fabric towards the back and bottom creating the illusion of a train. Hence the term “exaggerated”. I love the free flowing, whimsical feel of this dress, the excess fabric in the back makes me feel like a super hero with a cape! You know, the type of super hero that twirls around in chunky mules and a structured handbag full of tricks!

Keep an eye out for this “exaggerated” trend. Since my recent purchase of this dress I have stumbled across numerous stores and sites carrying similar styles, a few of which I have provided for you below!

P.S. It’s Wednesday! Don’t forget to tune into my Work Style Wednesday Blogger Link up and see what promotion worthy looks this week’s participants have put together!
